I made a quick visit to the National Trust’s The Vyne in Hampshire. Partly to have a coffee, but also to see the house.
A former Tudor powerhouse turned 17th century family home, set in gardens, woodlands, and wetlands.
The house was an interesting mix of medieval cellars, Tudor palace, and a 17th century family home.
After visiting the house and walking around the grounds I headed to the café for a coffee and something to eat. I went to the café, with the intention of having lunch, but the choice wasn’t inspiring. I didn’t fancy the cream of celeriac soup either. As celeriac, tastes like celery, and I really don’t like celery I knew I probably wouldn’t enjoy the soup.
So, I had a flat white and a cheese scone. The coffee was expertly made, and it was really nice. I enjoyed it. I was pleased it came in a proper china cup. The scone was okay, a little small I thought, but it was certainly cheesy.
